It is the song that doesn’t end. Yes, it goes on and on, my friend. Some people started singing it not knowing what it was, and they’ll continue singing it forever just because…

If you’re old enough to remember Lam Chop’s Play-Along, then you’re undoubtedly tortured by “The Song That Doesn’t End” and can relate it to the relentless trade rumors surrounding New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

As expected, those rumors took another turn on Tuesday with Michael Lombardi of The Athletic reporting that Beckham has supplied the Giants a “short list” of teams he’d be willing to accept a trade to.

Beckham, of course, has not once publicly stated he’d like to be traded or is overtly unhappy in New York, while Giants general manager Dave Gettleman has said repeatedly the team did not sign Beckham to a long-term extension just to turn around and trade him.

Yet, the rumors persist.

If Beckham has provided a short list of team’s he’d accept a trade to, it would indicate he was brought in to meet with Gettleman and was told a move is not only a possibility, but likely an inevitable end to this journey.

But when considering that the Giants paid Beckham nearly $5.5 million a season ago and would be on the hook for $16 million in dead cap by trading him before June 1, the notion of a trade not only seems unrealistic, but foolish.

In the event the Giants do trade Beckham pre-June 1, they will have ultimately paid the superstar nearly $21.5 million for just 12 games and six touchdowns. That would not sit well with Big Blue Nation and it’s unlikely co-owner John Mara would applaud that financial toilet flush, either.

If Gettleman does eventually ship Beckham off and then keeps Eli Manning on the roster at his currently salary, it will be a clear signal this team is folding in 2019 and working toward the future — something Manning unlikely wants any part of as his career winds down.

But beyond just that, it will beg the next question: Is Dave Gettleman on the hot seat?
